Nothing Says Punk Rock like These New Sex Pistols Credit Cards

Artwork from the Sex Pistol’s 1977 album Never Mind The Bollocks, Here’s The Sex Pistols will be featured on new credit cards from Virgin Money. The company is promoting the cards by claiming it’s “time for consumers to put a little bit of rebellion in their pocket.”

After all, nothing says rebellion like an 18.9 percent APR.

While using a band like the Sex Pistols to promote credit cards might seem ridiculous, there is a little more to the story. Virgin Records signed the band in 1977. The company later grew into a corporate behemoth, but there’s no denying its rock ‘n’ roll roots.

"In launching these cards, we wanted to celebrate Virgin’s heritage and difference,” said Michele Greene, Virgin Money’s director of cards. “The Sex Pistols challenged convention and the established ways of thinking – just as we are doing today in our quest to shake up UK banking.”

Whatever, lady. We both know Johnny Rotten would be rolling over in his grave … if he was dead and there was an earthquake at the cemetery. But he’s alive, and based on this patriotic butter commercial he made a few years ago, I imagine he’s fine with these cards.

“It’s not about Great Britain, it’s about great butter.”

It always is.
